The BIG Leatherjacket / Chafer grub survey

ICLin Pests & Diseases

This survey has been produced by ICL in response to the apparent increase in reports of Leatherjacket and Chafer grub infestations seen within the amateur and professional turf industries in recent years. This often poses a real challenge for turf managers in terms of controlling the pests to minimise damage. There are currently a limited number of approved products available to control the problem and with limited label restrictions for certain sectors.

In order to ascertain the size and severity of the issue it is important we poll a large number of turf managers from a broad cross section of the industry in order to gain a representative view of the situation. Whilst there is no guarantee that new control products will become available to the market we believe that proactive data gathering is needed to give all sectors a voice and ensure we can evidence the issues each sector is facing.

We hope you can find the time to take part and contribute to the data before the closing date 31st July 2021. The survey takes 2 minutes to undertake and your responses and identity are anonymous.
